FMG's Great Native Title Swindle| 29mins
Director: Michael Woodley & Lorraine Coppin | Producer:
Focus Years: | Country: Australia
This is a record of an illegitimate ‘native title’ meeting (16 March 2011) sponsored by the iron ore miner, Fortescue Metals Group (FMG) and its CEO, Andrew Forrest, the richest man in Australia. It shows how FMG, its agents, a lawyer and an opportunist splinter faction tried to strong-arm the Yindjibarndi community into removing all its objections to FMG’s mining in Yindjibarndi country (Pilbara, Western Australia), and into expelling the majority Claim Applicants who rejected FMG’s deal as a rip-off. The video demonstrates the actions of a miner trying to bully traditional owners into a land use ‘Agreement’ that will see massive disturbance of country and will swindle several generations of Yindjibarndi people. “They say a picture tells a thousand words,” said Michael Woodley, CEO of the Yindjibarndi Aboriginal Corporation, “but this video, it puts you right in the room with us, lets you get an idea of how it feels to be bullied and abused by Twiggy Forrest and FMG.” “If he wants to fight us online, he is going to get a shock. Money can’t buy the sort of help we are getting from people around the world,” said Mr Woodley, “and all these people want to take the stick to Twiggy and Fortescue Metals.”
